Politically dicey, but with a purpose
“Actively undermining U.S. policy as a former Secretary of State is literally unheard of.”
Or perhaps more to the point, why now?
“I’m going to blow the whistle on all of it.”
Even for this “incredible offer”?
“This team has proven itself incapable of managing the State Department.”
“We do not know why the U.S. government decided to emit this alert.”
Symbolic sanctions and cautious openings.
“I did not expect them to be shared with anyone in the U.S. government.”
Less than meets the eye
“This movement is textbook populism, full of magical thinking.”
“I have never considered leaving this post.”
USCCB to Vatican: Be transparent.
Everything old is new again
“it has not taken serious steps to end its own complicity in trafficking, including forced laborers from North Korea.”
“the initial letter submitted by the State Department was too soft…”
“Because I know people who didn’t start in 2009.”
Too Big Bird to fail?
A Tenth Amendment case? When’s the last time you saw that work?
“Mad Dog’s personnel choices are his and not what we are told are in his opinion political hacks from the Trump team…”
Security “equivalent of defcon 5”?
“This was Donald Trump’s thin skin and nothing else.”
We should care more about the backlog of openings at State.
“…on Wednesday afternoon, Kennedy and three of his top officials resigned unexpectedly”
Forget the new broom… it’s an ax
